When varicose veins are too large for sclerotherapy injections, microphlebectomy is an effective treatment for removal of the larger varicose veins.
Who is a Candidate for Microphlebectomy?
If you are suffering from varicose veins that are causing you painful or uncomfortable symptoms, you may be a candidate for microphlebectomy. If your varicose veins are close to the surface of the leg, then this procedure is especially suited for you. Make sure to ask your physician any questions you may have to determine if this procedure is right for you.
Benefits of Microphlebectomy
The procedure is minimally invasive, so no general anesthesia is required and the procedure usually takes less than an hour to complete. The incisions are tiny and often don’t require stitches to close them. There is minimal pain associated during the procedure and afterwards. Typically, you are able to go home and resume your daily activities immediately.
